Hi Joel- You offered help if I need it with audacity. Ok, I do. I recorderd my Monday class, that went well. I recorderd my Wednesday class. The recording seemed to go well, but when I got home to work with it, there I had trouble. I saved it in the wrong directory, and made the mistake of moving it. (Aparently I should have opened it and "saved it as " to the correct directory. Audacity now could not pick up as a project, so I tried to select all the au files. Well, it picked up as 750 or so pieces of lecture about 30 seconds long. I want to get it back together as one piece so I can export it as mp3. I have searched the net for tutorials, find nothing that will hel. thanks for any help.
